<< Someone keeps telling me Progressive Attitude is not a rebloomer.  >>

John, The 1998 cumulative checklist (reblooming irises) reports PA as 
reblooming in zones 5, 6, & 7.  Just because it wasn't introduced as a 
rebloomer doesn't mean it isn't a rebloomer.  It might be a sticking point in 
a show where the final word is the R & I's . . . especially if the program 
states "introduced as a rebloomer."  I once gave an award for rebloomers 
shown at a spring show and the judges insisted on using the R & I's, rather 
than the cumulative list, to determine elgibility.  A problem that doesn't 
exist in a fall show!

 <<<Nice flower and a pleasant winter surprise, but it doesn't
appear to match anything in the catalog I ordered from.>>

Your best bet on this one is to contact your supplier with your detailed 
description or, if possible, a picture.  Most know their beds well enough to 
know what you might have got. Still, there's no guarantee they can identify 
it, but they can replace the one you should have received.  (And you still 
have a nice mystery iris for winter bloom)

Sounds like you're having nice winter fun.
